Kentucky lawmakers vote to suspend the state law that requires school districts to have 170 days of classes. This comes after they failed to reach an agreement on a bill to issue waivers for make-up school days.

But this only counts if the school districts can meet a certain threshold. Students would still have to have more than 1,000 hours of classroom instruction.

If all requirements are met, the school year would end on June 6.
